Under the directives of Drs. Jacqueline Garner and Ralph Mensah, Integrative Family Dentistry gives detailed diagnoses to manicure mouths in a caring environment. Unlatch designer muzzles for the comprehensive exam, during which a specialist will rove for dental distresses through visual probing, bitewing x-rays, and panoramic film. A polished prophylaxis will restore cleanliness to tooth surfaces and gum lines. After thoroughly exploring the mouth, a dentist will report any signs of maladies, cavities, or misplaced car keys.
With the aim of becoming the Ritz-Carlton of dental offices, Dr. Jean Woods and her staff lavish patients with individualized attention and luxurious amenities during aesthetic and general dentistry services. The staff soothes dentist's-office-related anxieties by blocking out sounds with a Bose headphones system or by painlessly warding off discomfort with a computer-operated local anesthetic. To remove plaque, they use a technique called air abrasion, which eschews harsh drills for compressed air. Whether boosting patients' self-confidence with root-canal therapy or performing general check-ups, the staff uses advanced technology, including intraoral cameras and rotary instruments. Dr. Woods keeps her tools sharp by participating in several professional organizations, including the American Dental Association and the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners. She also plays an active role within the community by sponsoring the shadowing program, which welcomes future dentists to explore the field and partake in its after-work foosball tournaments.

In 2008, husband and wife Jason and Shanon Rabon saw something was missing from their native city of Charlotte. People who wanted a more brilliant smile to display during dates, weddings, or long commutes couldn't gain one with ease. Usually, whitening one’s teeth requires an expensive visit to the dentist to brighten smiles with a combination of hydrogen-peroxide gel and LED light. Jason and Shanon offer an alternative at their seven Whiten My Smile Now locations, which provide the same treatment at a far lower cost. It’s a convenience that has rapidly ascended in popularity: around 15,000 clients seek out the service each year.
During visits, a technician thoroughly explains the procedure and holds up a mirror while the client brushes the whitening gel directly onto their teeth. This brush-delivery method delves deep into the cracks and nooks of the teeth to evenly lift out discoloration and stains. With gel applied, clients relax in a private area under the LED light for approximately 15 minutes. Afterwards, they can check how many shades teeth have brightened by comparing their smiles to a whitening chart.
Dr. Robert M. Young believes in comfort almost as much as he believes in healthy smiles. At Brassfield Cosmetic & Family Dental Center, he surrounds guests with homey touches: hardwood accents, overstuffed couches in the waiting room, antique furniture and pastoral paintings, and video-game systems set up and waiting to play. Such comforts even follow guests into the treatment rooms, where personal TVs hang over the chairs so that patients can watch their favorite shows while the doctor and his staff fix crooked, cracked, and stained teeth. Yet even though the decor is domestic, the equipment is anything but. Dr. Young can peer into the hidden spaces above and below the gum line with digital x-rays, cover teeth with custom veneers, and obliterate stains caused from mistaking a highlighter for a toothbrush with an in-office whitening system.
Dentists at Carolina Dental Arts restore smiles and subtly enhance them at various locations throughout North Carolina. They prevent plaque and tartar from turning into cavities during child and adult checkups, or they perform repairs during root canals and dental-implant installations. Dentists at some locations brighten teeth with Zoom! whitening or spray paint, while others straighten bites with Invisalign's clear aligners or Six Month Smiles' clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. Carolina Dental Arts is all about making a visit to the dentist as comfortable as possible, which is why they provide complimentary wifi, water, and coffee; and make a point to remember each tooth by name.
